War in Ukraine – History becomes Weaponized

As an academic institution specialized in War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, and coordinator of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI), which has a Ukrainian partner, NIOD strongly condemns Russia’s invasion of free and sovereign Ukraine. We are deeply concerned about threats to civilians and loss of life. We are committed to supporting members of the Ukrainian academic community who are directly or indirectly impacted by these events.

Watch a recording of the meeting below.

In order to discuss and share our knowledge and stance on this war, launched allegedly to “denazify” a neighboring state, NIOD organized the online ‘NIOD-ACTUEEL’-meeting, ‘War in Ukraine – History becomes Weaponized’ on Tuesday March 1.

In this meeting, five NIOD researchers specialized in Ukrainian and Russian history and other relevant fields of research shared personal experiences and academic insights (Nanci Adler, Karel Berkhoff, Anne-Lise Bobeldijk, Tam Ngo, Uğur Üngör). Prof. Ismee Tames (NIOD) moderated the meeting together with Anne van Mourik.
